Hello Ontario, Canada
For us hosts, here is the official Government of Ontario link for Thursdays 28 day Covid Lockdown.
Stay healthy everyone
Thanks, @M199 . There is always a host who asks!
And this time the rules are clear, which is great: no STRs except for those in need of housing.
Clearing my January calendar got sticky because a few guests argued that they could stay. It ended up taking some time to point out that essential travel does not include holidays in treehouses...
Clearing my February calendar should be easier thanks to this clearer restriction. I've already got one cancelled.
Hope you are doing okay with that process, too.
Had to go in and manually block all my future prep days, @M199 . Guests moving their reservations were seeing those as open, and even able to request changing to them, which would have meant same day turnovers. Uncool.
Just letting you know in case you have a flurry of February reservations moving their dates as well.
As of today, January 13, 2021 - below are the rental excerpts from the updated pdf on the aforementioned link.
